Fix: Microsoft Edge Pinned on Taskbar when Opening another Window
Why this happens and how to prevent it
When you open a new window in Microsoft Edge, the previous window may become “pinned” to the taskbar. This is because Edge treats each new window as a separate app, so it defaults to pinning the previous window to the taskbar.
There are a few ways to prevent this from happening. First, you can deselect the “Pin new tabs to taskbar” option in the Edge settings. This will prevent new windows from being pinned to the taskbar, but it may also make it more difficult to keep track of your open tabs.
Another way to prevent this from happening is to use Edge’s “tab preview” feature. This will show you a thumbnail of each open tab in the taskbar, so you can quickly identify and switch to the tab you want. To enable tab preview, go to the Edge settings and select the “Show tab preview” option.
How to troubleshoot other Microsoft Edge problems
If you’re having trouble with Microsoft Edge, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue.
First, try restarting your computer. This can sometimes fix minor issues with software.
If that doesn’t work, try resetting Microsoft Edge. You can do this by going to the Settings menu and selecting “Reset”.
If neither of those solutions work, you can try reinstalling Microsoft Edge. This will delete all your Edge data, so make sure to back up any important information first.
If you’re still having trouble, you can contact Microsoft support for help.
How to use Microsoft Edge effectively
Microsoft Edge is a web browser that is designed to be a lightweight and fast alternative to other web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Edge is based on the Chromium open-source project and uses the Blink layout engine.
One of the features that sets Edge apart from other browsers is its integration with Windows 10. Edge is the default web browser in Windows 10 and is designed to work well with other Microsoft products and services.
If you’re using Microsoft Edge, here are some tips to help you make the most of the browser:
-Get to know the Edge interface. The Edge browser has a minimalistic interface that is designed to make it easy to find the features you need. The main toolbar is located at the top of the browser window and includes the address bar, search bar, and navigation controls.
-Customize the Edge toolbar. Edge allows you to customize the toolbar to include the buttons and icons that you need. To customize the toolbar, click the “More” button (three dots) on the toolbar and select “Settings.” Under “Customize toolbar,” you can add or remove toolbar items.
-Make use of Edge’s built-in features. Edge includes a number of built-in features that can make your web browsing experience more efficient and enjoyable. For example, Edge has a built-in PDF reader that allows you to view PDF documents without having to install a separate PDF viewer. Edge also includes a note-taking tool that allows you to take notes and save them to your Microsoft account.
-Take advantage of Edge’s extensions. Edge supports a number of extensions that can add additional features and functionality to the browser. Extensions are available for a variety of tasks, such as ad blocking, password management, and news reading. To find extensions, click the “More” button on the toolbar and select “Extensions.”
-Make Edge your default browser. If you want Edge to be your default web browser, you can set it as the default in Windows 10. To do this, click the “More” button on the toolbar and select “Settings.” Under “Default browser,” select “Microsoft Edge.”
By following these tips, you can make Microsoft Edge your go-to web browser for all your web browsing needs.
